Conscious Cleanse

The mission of the Conscious Cleanse is to provide simple ways to help you flourish in your own body so you can access true healing. Jules and Jo will call forth your vibrant self so that you can live your best life. This is the Conscious Cleanse journey, and we are grateful to share it with you!
Jo Schaalman
Co-Founder of the Conscious Cleanse
Ever feel like you’ve been hit by a truck? Well, Jo Schaalman has and she is an expert in recovery.
Jo was a state champion gymnast, a nationally ranked diver and a diving coach. While prepping for medical school she was t-boned by a semi-truck during a cross-country bike tour. The physical and emotionally grueling recovery process ultimately led her to the wondrous healing benefits of clean eating that are at the foundation of the Conscious Cleanse.
Jo graduated with honors from Grinnell College. Her yoga mentors are Ana Forrest and Dr. Theron Randolph, and she studied at a Master’s level at the Nutrition Therapy Institute. Jo is driven to help people who think healing is out of their reach. Through nutrition and yoga coaching, Jo helps others reach the optimal health she is so thankful for.
She lives in Boulder, CO where she still teaches yoga while running The Conscious Co. A mother to wonder baby Ilse and wife to Mr. Teacher, Jo is sure to drink a green smoothie every morning.
